ENCOURAGING WORDS FROM THE WORD
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Encouraging Word: “Why does God allow suffering?”

Why does God rescue some and not others?

Why does God heal some and not others?

Why does God bless some with children and not others?

Why does God bless some with much financial resources and not so much for others?



DOES PRAYER WORK?
Discussed by Paul Batura
with Focus on the Family www.Family.org

Over the past few weeks 12 school age boys and their soccer coach were trapped in a cave in Thailand, attracting news coverage from around the globe. Social media posts and headlines worldwide begged people to pray to God for the trapped soccer team and the heroes who fought to save them. After a harrowing rescue by Thai Navy Seals, the boys all escaped alive.

What role did prayer play?

Paul Batura is the Vice President of Communications at Focus on the Family. Today, Paul will be discussing the importance of prayer and accepting God’s response – no matter what.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Is it right that we should question God’s motives?

Will it matter in heaven?

Dr. James Dobson, the President of Focus on the Family, wrote a book on this subject: “When God Doesn’t Make Sense”.  Listen as Paul Batura discusses this book…

Paul also mentions a quote by Admiral James Stockdale, Presidential Candidate (1992) and Vietnam Soldier: “Life is not fair. Get over it.

If you are suffering right now with a situation and would like to speak to someone, please contact a counselor at Focus on the Family 1.800.AFAMILY



ARE OBAMACARE ENROLLEES WORKING?
Discussed by Victoria Eardley
with Foundation for Government Accountability (www.theFGA.org)

New research from the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) finds that an estimated 6.8 million ObamaCare expansion enrollees are not working at all.

Victoria Eardley is a Research Fellow at the Foundation for Government Accountability. Listen as Victoria sheds more light on this issue.

You can read the report from FGA here. 

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Was that the purpose of Obamacare?

Are people who are not working eligible for Medicaid?

What percentage of people not working receive Medicaid?

Are they required to pay a premium? Or is their medical care completely free – paid for by the tax payers?

Do many on Obamacare Medicaid also receive food stamps and housing/electricity allowances? Does this just lock them into a perpetual circle of welfare?

Are there some on waiting lists who cannot physically work but have been denied Medicaid because others are bleeding the system dry?

Would implementing commonsense work and/or volunteer requirements move able-bodied adults from welfare to work, ensuring that funds are preserved for the truly needy?



CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled: “Making the Most of Your Work” and is taken from Colossians 3:23 (NIV) “Whatever you do work at it with all your heart as working for the Lord, not for men.

Chuck Bentley believes that it is important to find contentment in your workplace. In today’s devotion, he offers some tips for those who are miserable in their current job and for those who may be looking for a new job.

Further Scripture reading: The Book of Joel



JESUS: THE TEACHER
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 4

This summer, Mark will be digging deeper into the words spoken by Jesus. The goal and purpose of these devotions are to give us a better understanding about Jesus and draw us closer to him.

Mark Lanier is back this week with a look at five different devotionals from Jesus.

Questions/Issues Discussed:


Fourth Devotional: “Jesus is an Interested Teacher” Luke 7:40-50

Is Jesus actually interested in YOU? Short Answer: You bet!

In these verses in Luke, Jesus knew what Simon was thinking about the “sinful woman”. How did Jesus rebuke him?


Fifth Devotional: “He’s God. Not a Genie.” Matthew 10:35

Mark shares a funny story about his youngest daughter, Sarah. Tune in tomorrow to hear the rest!

CHILDREN ARE A GIFT
Discussed by Steven Morris
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 4

We are all part of the family of God. Does God want us to just survive in His family? Or does He want us to thrive?

Psalms 127:3 “Children are a gift from the Lord.”

This week, Champion Forest Baptist Church Student Pastor Steven Morris will be encouraging us, as adults and mentors, to invest in the lives in the generation coming behind us.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Why should we ALL come to Jesus with the attitude and heart of a child?

John Piper says this about children: “Children display in their dependence the way into the Kingdom of God.” Do you feel like you need to “earn” God’s love and grace? Stop it! Just accept it and live for Him!

How did you come to faith in Christ? Have you shared your salvation story with your kids? You should!

Are you bringing others to a saving knowledge of Christ? Pastor Steven Morris warns us that sometimes are “inactions” are seen more than our “actions”. Don’t be an inactive Christian.

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
